Crossing Borders: Siobhan Davies and Mathieu Copeland 8 November 2011

Re-envisaging the word ‘curator’ from a choreographic point of view.

Stemming from conversations between Siobhan and Mathieu, the discussion will explore the proximity between choreography and curating, and how curating an exhibition somehow shares the same materiality as choreography: time, and orchestration of time.


Mathieu Copeland has been developing a practice which seeks to subvert the traditional role of exhibitions, renewing our perceptions. He co-curated the exhibition VOIDS, A Retrospective at the Centre Pompidou in Paris and at the Kunsthalle in Bern. Other works include A Choreographed Exhibition at the Kunsthalle St Gallen &Ferme du Buisson, Soundtrack for an Exhibition at the Musée d'Art Contemporain Lyon , A Spoken Word Exhibitions and An Exhibition to Hear Read. Mathieu Copeland lectures in the MA fine arts at the HEAD in Geneva.
